Chilliwack youth coach sexual touching decision scheduled for Monday

BC Supreme Court justice scheduled to rule on Codie Anderson case Feb. 24

A judge is set to make a decision Monday whether or not a former Chilliwack youth coach is guilty of sexual touching an 11-year-old boy in 2010.

Codie Anderson (who went by Hindle at the time) was charged with one count of sexual interference under 16.

At trial, he was accused by two other young males of similar sexual touching, evidence Anderson argued should not have been allowed to be included, but was allowed by BC Supreme Court Justice Thomas Crabtree.

The trial ended in September, and a decision was scheduled for Dec. 17. That was postponed by the judge for personal reasons, with the new date now set for Feb. 24, 2020.
